Organisers of Osun Cultural Carnival have announced change of plans and total rebranding of the cultural event billed for August 17.
Our Heritage Branding & Advertising LTD said the event will now be called Nigeria Cultural Carnival with its debut edition slated for Ibadan, capital of Oyo State.
The carnival is packaged to create an event that would cause a global attraction with over 80,000 attending annually to promote the culture and heritage of 36 states in Nigeria and play host to cultural troupes from around the world.
On what informed the total rebranding, the festival director, Wilson Chibututu, explained: “The rebranding became necessary after series of meetings with stakeholders and brainstorming sessions with the carnival team. This is an expansion of what we wanted to limit a particular state.”
